Gothic Crypt Goth's super group returns with a brand new ep of pure, uncompromised gothic rock that arrogantly sneers at trends. Gothic Crypt approves.

darkliner October Burns Black comes closest to the heart of Goth,
they cooked a handmade Elixir that touches , major and minor ingredients in an alternating form of art.

about

Reflections is the second coming from the minds of October Burns Black. Fronted by Rod Hanna, this release is a four track totem to the despair and unhappiness of our times and the human condition. As the title would suggest it is, by turns, introspective and outward looking.

Endure. Then fade....

...but hopefully not too much.

Track Name: The Predator
Feline grace and eyes that burn my heart
Wicked Soul she’ll tear my life apart
Toy with me, she pulls me by the strings
Addicted to the cruel pain she brings
Can’t escape I never wanted to
She feeds a need, a pain that’s vile and cruel
Beckons me I never can resist
Ecstasy, the more she will persist

‘And she’s haunting me.
And she’s stalking me, The Predator!’

Snakelike grip upon my heart and soul
Venom flowing, torture takes its toll
Silence me with a cutting glance
Talons raised, I watch her slow advance
Unprepared for her lithe attack
Down on the floor, I’m lying on my back
Succubus, nocturnal predator
She leaves me bleeding crying out for more

‘And she’s haunting me. The Predator!
And she’s stalking me, The Predator!’

She calls, I fall, She calls, I fall, She calls...
‘And she’s haunting me. The Predator!
And she’s stalking me, The Predator!’
Track Name: Dark Times Ahead
Through the mists of time we have returned to here
A world in decay lies before us and darkness looms
The return of the past in ‘respectable’ guise
The message the same through deception and travesty

What will they do when there’s no one to blame?
What will they do when there’s no one to blame?

A terrible lie we have swallowed as truth
Poison our minds, blind our reason and no one gains
Only those drunk on power and fame

Fall Down. Fall Down.
Dark times ahead...
Castigation, the conflagration fuels the hate
Raping our minds...
The downward spiral
Toxic, vile
And we reap what we sow!
And we reap what we sow!

A terrible truth before us
All light is fading into darkness

And no one gains here
No one left now to blame
The past comes back to haunt us
Track Name: Cast Aside
Cast me aside, discard my broken heart
Take all my hopes and dreams and throw them to the wind
Your cruel eyes, your cold and empty smile
They disillusion me and break my shattered soul

Cast Me Aside, leave me on the shore
No fond farewell or tears just heartless apathy
Cast Me Aside, Cast Me Away, Cast Me Aside, Cast Me Away, Cast Me Aside

What is it worth? This toxic deal of ours
A castle built on sand crumbling to the ground
A lesson learned, old now with regret
A sad and wiser man, guarded, no more pain

Cast Me Aside, leave me on the shore
No fond farewell or tears just heartless apathy
Cast Me Aside, Cast Me Away, Cast Me Aside, Cast Me Away, Cast Me Aside
Cast me far away...
Track Name: Reflections
So here I lie...
Looking back to where it all began
The Hourglass, tells me that my time is soon to come
The Hourglass, tells me that my time is soon to come

This game of chance we play
No guarantees they say
Reflecting on my life
The wasted years they taunt
An emptiness takes hold
I watch my death unfold
I fear for those I will leave behind

What time we waste!
Playing futile games and spurning chance
I played it safe, let my dreams decay through fear and doubt
I played it safe, let my dreams decay through fear and doubt

This game of chance we play
No guarantees they say
Reflecting on my life
The wasted years they taunt
An emptiness takes hold
I watch my death unfold
I fear for those I will leave behind

Then Fade. Endure. Then Fade
